Camden’s young people are getting ready for a fun-filled 2024 Youth Week this month. Part of a national annual celebration, it will run during April 11-21 in Camden.

From tattoo workshops to a cooking with leftovers course at Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living, there is literally something for everyone on offer.

A highlight is a Camden High School wellbeing day for their students – an inflatable ninja course, a super footy challenge, and visits from local support services.

Youth Week is all about giving people aged 12-24 an opportunity to share ideas, have their voices heard on issues that concern them, showcase their talents, celebrate their contributions and, above all, have fun.

Camden Council says it is proud to be promoting an exceptional local Youth Week program, which includes events and activities offered both by council and community groups from right across the Macarthur region.

 Mayor of Camden, Cr Ashleigh Cagney, pictured above, is encouraging young people to take part in all of the free activities.

“People aged between 12 and 24 years make up about 16 per cent of the total Camden population,” she said.

“It’s so important we keep that segment of our population engaged with and excited about what’s happening around them, which is why programs like Youth Week are so vital.

“There’s a great mix of events and activities on offer this year, all aimed at helping young people to stay informed about local issues and connecting them with peers from across the Camden area.

“Camden’s Youth Week celebrations have won several awards in the past few years, and this year’s program definitely upholds this fantastic reputation.’’
